This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
You can have different web applications deployed in same web server. In that case, there are more than one ServletContext(s) exist in same web server(for each web application). If you want to access the servlet context of other applciation deployed in same web server from your application, you can use this method.
Just use: getServletContext().getRequestDispatcher("/login.jsp");
This will get the context object for the current app.
And yes, the user will see the login.jsp in their browser. The browser's address window, however, will still show the original address for this servlet. This all takes place on the server without the browser's knowledge.
